Since the early1800s, there have been labor struggles, struggles against slavery and
struggles for a more equitable distribution of wealth in the United States. Uris will briefly
examine some of that history, including the formation of labor unions, idealistic and
utopian movements for social justice, peace movements and efforts to bring a better
share of the resources of this continent to all its people..

Dr. Joe Uris is an associate professor (ret.) of history and sociology at Portland State
University, a journalist, and KBOO (Tuesday am) talk show host. From the early 60s on,
Joe organized for peace and social justice in New York and Portland.
History of Social Justice Organizing is an ongoing series of presentations by activists
and scholars on a wide variety of social justice organizing both in Portland and
elsewhere.
